By R. Beck
This movie caught my attention at the video store and I read the synopsis and it sounded like it had potential, so I decided to give it a go. First off this film is based on a Stephen King short story which I learned during the opening credits of the dvd, being a Stephen King fan this made me expect more from the get go and I was not disappointed. Christian Slater and Wes Bentley both did an excellent job. Dolan's Cadillac was well paced and a pleasure to watch from beginning to end. One down side is i would have liked to know a little bit more about Wes Bentley's slain wife, but this did not take away too much from the film in my opinion. If you like revenge/thriller themed movies Dolan's Cadillac will not disappoint.

Wes Bentley continues to impress me with his acting ability. He has been in only a handful of recognizable films to the main stream Hollywood industry with such titles being P2, Ghost Rider, and American beauty. i would like to see him in more films.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the short story! March 16, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved the short story from Stephen King, so expected more of the movie. The story went into great detail about the planning and physical work that "Robinson" went to for revenge, the movie didn't detail that as deeply, which was a disappointment to me. It was also kind of a shock to see Christian Slater as "Dolan". I've never seen him in a role as the major bad-dude. Oh, and the language was pretty bad. I'm certainly not a prude, but the language was a little much and not really necessary.

4.0 out of 5 stars Far better than most adaptions of King's stories July 13, 2010
While this isn't exactly a masterpiece, "Dolan's Cadillac" is ten times better than most of the Stephen King fare out there (his movies *and* books). I still remember reading the film's story title "Dolan's Cadillac" when I was young in that great collection "Everything's Eventual" and never forgetting the sheer macabre subtlety with which King ends the cool, chilling tale of an ordinary man's revenge on a top mobster who had his wife murdered for testifying against him as a witness to a crime.

Wes Bentley (Robinson, recalling well Weldon Kee's disillusioned, angry poetic persona) is a sixth grade schoolteacher with a relatively happy life and a lovely wife who teaches at the same school. They live around Las Vegas and one day, while she is horseriding around the desert, she witnesses the thuggish, brutal Christian Slater execute a fellow henchmen for not delivering his "sex slave product" on time. She drops her cellphone, and though they are given witness protection, she is killed with a car bomb.

No, Robinson is not as bald as in the story and yes it departs from the text quite a bit--but in the end, perhaps for a little innovative creativity. When Robinson devises his most cruel trap--a tarpaulin facade on the highway which is in reality a huge ditch meant for Dolan's (Christian Slater) and he falls in, the dialogue is worthy of some of the finest literature we have--in some parts hammy, in other parts superior to King's ending itself, though he was aiming for a more obsessive and subtle approach. Edgar Allan Poe is in the air, to be certain. The question of revenge, particularly this sort of elaborately devised and sinister sort, is explored with exquisite detail as the two characters scream at each other, one buried in the desert with nothing but a gun he can no longer use, and one with a conscience that is being severely tested. Not a masterpiece, but a brilliant adaptation, and absolutely recommended to any fan of the original Stephen King.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad July 20, 2010
By Gary
Dolan's Cadillac is quite an impressive looking film. The budget was probably fairly small but that doesn't particularly show. The actors all do a fine job and the dialogue is very good. If it has a flaw it's that it's based on a short story and there's not really enough happening to justify the running time. As an hour long tv film it would be outstanding. Even so, it's well made and worth a watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fun flick made from a King novella! July 28, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I love Stephen King novels and short-stories, and I love the movies people make from them. Having read this story a number of years ago in one of his short-story collections, I was excited to find out someone had made a movie of it. Especially since it was one of his short-stories that always stayed with me. The methodical planning and execution of a man seeking revenge for the death of his wife, and especially in the way King wrote it, was something not easily forgotten. It was definitely one of my favorite stories from that collection.

Anyway, I didn’t even think twice to pick this up. And I’ve got to say they didn’t do a bad job. A lot of movies, although not all by any means, are pretty cheesy. But I’ve always enjoyed them nonetheless. This movie seemed more like a regular movie though, for there is really no out-of-this-world phenomena that takes place in the story/movie. Everything is pretty much grounded in reality. It is simply a story of revenge using methods and tools available to anyone.

The acting was pretty good, and it was a pleasure to see Mr. Slater getting some work again. I hadn’t seen him in a while. It’s hard to imagine anyone doing a good job of taking the short-story of Dolan’s Cadillac and turning it into a full-length movie, but they pulled it off.
I’d recommend this to any King fan, and fan of movies made from his books, or anyone who likes a really good story of revenge.
